On arrival we were informed that it was now turned into a spa for all guest to use! 4 American women had booked it out for the whole weekend not giving us a the romantic break that we thought we were going to have....

Francois-v-d-Nest, Owner at Maqueda Lodge, responded to this review

Sorry about your disappointment Stormy, I never realized that the TripAdvisor room tips from other guests still states that the plunge pool is part of the room. The reason we changed it was that guests seldom use any of the two plunge pools we have on offer, but they love the spa treatments. If there are no treatments in progress,...

Along with our three adult kids (18,19, and 24), I traveled to Krueger Park, wanting to go on a safari. A friend told us to stay at Maqueda Lodge and that was the best decision we could have made. The place is absolutely beautiful, meticulously clean (great hot showers) with outstanding meals, but the best part is how Francois and...

Our table however was very nice with good company and a good convsation. Interior decoration is of good taste, with good sense for detail, which increases the level...

I have returned to my absolute favourite lodge in Marloth Park, once again, for a much needed breakaway from the rat-race! I agree with another reviewer (Denise); Maqueda Lodge is an absolute gem! Definitely THE Jewel of Lodges/Hotels in Marloth Park! The opulent ambience, 6-star service, wining&dining under the African sky, relaxing by the camp fire, whilst breathing-in the tranquility...

My friend and I stayed at Maqueda Lodge two weeks ago and it was fantastic! It’s located in Marloth Park, which is just a short drive from Kruger National Park. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the staff are friendly and you get to enjoy delicious 3 course meals that the chef, Etienne, cooks up each night. The host,...

This lodge is a gem! Located in Marloth Park, only 15 minutes from the Crocodile Bridge entrance to Kruger Park, you can expect to see zebras, impalas, girafes and all kind of animals wandering the grounds. Enjoy the sounds of the wildlife at night, sitting at the fire, sipping a glass of wine... just perfect! The lodge is beautiful, the...
